Inauguration: February 2, 2012
Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia
Manzana 1 Espacio de Arte is a not-for-profit art gallery located in the historical center of downtown Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. It is called Manzana 1 because it is found on the city’s first block. The building, which has been acknowledged as part of Santa Cruz’s historical legacy, was formerly the headquarters of the National Police and, after 13 years of neglect, it was opened once more, this time as a cultural space in 2005.
Beatriz Oggero is a Uruguay-born artist living in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
